Hexi at first thought that Nalan Hexi let Xiao Chi take the medicine that would make him lose his mind, so he became like a beast now.
However, after some examination, there was no sign of being poisoned at all. His mind was intact. There was no sign of injury.
In other words, with her younger brother’s current situation, if she could put some effort in teaching him, it wasn’t enough to let him gain the wisdom to live like a human.
Hexi couldn’t help frowning as she watched the young boy who slept soundly on the bed but habitually maintained the sleeping posture of a puppy.
Obviously, this was beyond the scope of medical skills which couldn’t be solved by Hexi now.
What should I do?
Do I really want to see my brother living like a beast? Without dignity? Without wisdom?
How can I allow it?
Hexi raised her head. Her eyes were a little confused looking at Nangong Yu. She said in a low voice, “Nangong Yu, can you save Xiao Chi?”
Nangong Yu sighed and finally got up from the chair.
He took a few steps forward, embracing the girl’s soft body in his arms and pinching the tip of her nose. He chuckled softly, “You heartless little girl, after watching your brother for so long, you finally noticed my existence? I almost become a husband-waiting rock!”
Hexi couldn’t help but looked around, only to realize that the sun was rising on the sky outside the window that was originally black.
This… this must be at least two or three hours, right? Nangong Yu just sits next to me and waits for me?
A touch of guilt surged in Hexi’s heart, but she felt more warm and sweet.
She grabbed the man’s big palm and gently rubbed the thin callus on his palm, not knowing what to say for a while.
Nangong Yu looked at the haggard and cyan under her eyes, and his heart felt distressed.
After all, the person lying on the bed was Xi’er’s brother. He had known Xi’er for so long, and he had never seen her emotions fluctuate so vigorously today. No wonder she was so worried!
“Don’t worry, no matter what disease your brother has, I will find a way to cure him.”
Nangong Yu took the first two steps and channeled a wave of spiritual power to pour into Xiao Chi’s body.
After a while, he couldn’t help frowning. There was a dignified look in his eyes.
Hexi couldn’t help but said, “Did you find anything?”
Nangong Yu shook his head, nodded again, and then closed his eyes tightly. He separated a strand of Divine Sense into Xiao Chi’s body.
After a long time, Nangong Yu opened his eyes and exhaled slowly.
His face was a little pale, and the blackness under his eyes was heavier as if he had been greatly depleted.
Hexi quickly took out a bottle of Ninth Secluded Spirit Spring and let him drink it slowly.
Holding her slender wrist, Nangong Yu chuckled while drinking water, “My princess is really virtuous, knowing that I’m thirsty, so you personally feed me the water.”
Hexi glared at him, ignoring his ridicule. She checked his pulse carefully. After making sure that it was just his vitality depleting and weakening, she was relieved.
After Nangong Yu drank Ninth Secluded Spirit Spring, his face looked better quickly. He then put away his hippie smile, and said with dignified, “Xi’er, your brother’s three spiritual souls and seven physical souls (three hun and seven po), it seems that a part is lacking.”
“Three spiritual souls and seven physical souls?!” Hexi exclaimed, “How is it possible? I remember that there are records in ancient books that Miluo Continent does have some evil martial artists who use the spell of soul-stealing. However, no matter which kind of spell, it is impossible to hurt the human brain at all.”
